You will simply need to cut the plate to size to fit into your chimney opening.
    • 3. We also provide you with a single stove glove that you can use for stoking the fire and adding wood without the risk of personal injury.

    *Excludes electric stoves, flueless and balanced flue gas stoves - as these are not required.

    Optional Extras.

    Carbon Monoxide Detector:

    Due to an update to Building Regulations it is now law to have a Carbon Monoxide alarm present in any room with a solid fuel appliance:- The Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document J (2010 Edition) '2.34 Where a new or replacement fixed solid fuel appliance is installed in the dwelling, a carbon monoxide alarm should be provided in the room where the appliance is located.' 


    Flue Liner Packs:

    The flue liner pack consists of; a nose cone, to easily manoeuvre the flue liner into place, a flue adaptor, which connects the stove pipe to the flexible flue liner, Dura Flue flexible flue liner (this is 6" in diameter and 316 Grade) cut to the required length and a 6" pot hanger rain cap, this supports the flue liner from the top of the chimney and also acts as a bird guard and rain cap.



    Stove Pipe with Door:

    A stove pipe with door or access point, allows the chimney to be swept through the pipe itself.  




    Stove Glass Insurance:

    If you select to take out our stove glass insurance this covers your stove glass for the time period you select. If your glass breaks within that time period we will send you a replacement piece of glass regardless of the reason the glass broke. All we will ask is that you send a picture of the broken glass.
    The insurance only covers you for one replacement piece of glass. It doesn't cover you if you break the replacement piece of glass.
    All stove glass is covered during delivery and any glass broken in transit to you will be replaced free of charge, without affecting your stove glass insurance.



    Please make the relevant selection above when placing your order if you require any of these parts and also select whether or not you require a Carbon Monoxide alarm sending out with your order. Please note that if these parts aren't selected with your order we can't send them for free after your order has been delivered.

  • Delivery Info
    Free 1 Man Delivery

    Our "Free Delivery" is a one man service. The goods will arrive on a lorry that is about the size of a fire engine. (Please let us know in advance if you have restricted access.).

    The lorry has a tail lift that allows the driver to get the stove/oven off the vehicle, the stove/oven will be packed on a pallet and the driver will have a pallet truck.

    He'll be able wheel this as close as possible to your property, if you have a garage he'll be able to wheel it into there for you.

    The pallet truck can only be wheeled over a finished surface so it's not possible to wheel it over a gravelled drive nor is it possible to wheel up or down steps.

    The pallets are normally about a 1m wide so this is the minimum width gate they can fit through. Please note that the driver is not insured to unpack or carry the stove/oven into your house.

    If the goods are showing 24hr or 48hr delivery then this is the quickest time we're able to deliver these items. You'll be asked to select your a delivery date when purchasing the goods.

    Please note that it is an all day delivery.

    Two Man Delivery (£60)

    As the name suggests with our two man delivery service the goods will be delivered by two men. They will carry your stove into the room of your choice where possible. If the hallway is to narrow or they feel that they can’t fit it through the doorway safely they might not be able to get it into the room.

    They will normally carry it up 1 flight of stairs (if it's safe to do so) but this is at their discretion so if you have a 3rd floor flat please inform us before hand to avoid any issues during delivery.

    The two man delivery normally take 5 - 10 working days to be delivered from dispatch. Once the goods are in stock you will be contacted and delivery arranged.

    Hi When burning wood with this multi-fuel stove, which is the most effective way? I understand as a multi-fuel stove there is a riddling grate which works well in increasing efficiency when burning coal and other solid fuels, but wood to prefers a single direction of air i.e not through the grate, from above only. I want the flexibility of a multi fuel stove, but would be mainly burning wood. Is the grate removable, or can you advice an affective method of burning wood with this stove? Any help regarding this matter would be gratefully appreciated.
    Hi Tony
    Thank you for your question.
    I have 2 stoves in my house and they have completely different characters, so it can be a case of trial and error learning how to get the best from them.
    I find the best way to burn wood in a multifuel stove is to start a kindling fire with the air control fully open.
    Once the fire is established, I add a log.
    When the log is fully alight, I add 2 more logs and then turn the primary air down to about a quarter.
    This gives the wood fire air from the back (Secondary burn) and top (tertiary burn) vents.
    If you find the glass starts to fog or blacken you need to open the air control more and if it's blazing through logs it needs turning down.
    I hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    Hi, Pricing up all the bits I need for a new Firefox 5 multifuel installation. It will be fitted onto a 6 inch liner, can this be swept through the appliance its self or must I fit a flue pipe with access panel?
    Thank you for your question.

    Yes, it is possible to sweep the flue through the stove so it's not necessary to order a flue pipe with a door.

    Many Thanks

    Good morning. I would like to purchase a Firefox 5 and just wanted to ask a naïve question. How do I work out what size of flue liner I need?
    Good Morning Joanne!
    Thank you for your question, it's a good question!
    Measure from the floor of the room where the stove will sit to the top of the chimney pot. This is more than you need but provides extra for any bends etc. To work out this measurement add the following together (assumes two floors):

    1. Height of downstairs room (usually 2.5m or 3m)
    2. Height of upstairs room (usually same as downstairs)
    3. Height of loft to apex of roof (e.g. 2m)
    4. Height of chimney stack above apex (e.g. 1m)
    Also add the thickness of the two floors. We use a figure of 0.5m per floor so in a standard two storey property this is an extra metre.
    The final figure is more than you will need but this is useful in case there are bends in the chimney. Flue liner is easy to cut but impossible to make longer.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    In which country is the Firefox 5 woodburning / multi stove built please?
    Hi Sally,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Firefox 5 wood stove is made in China. Don't let that put you off though. It's one of our most popular models, we've sold hundreds without complaint and they come with a 10-year body warranty. We think the Firefox 5 is an excellent stove for the money.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,
    Customer Support answered on 15 August 2017
    Is there any warranty on this stove? Thanks
    Hi Victoria,
    Thanks for your question.
    Yes, the Firefox 5 multifuel stove has a 10 year warranty covering body, door and moving parts.
    The glass, as with most stoves, is not a warranty item.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    What dimensions are required for the fireplace to accomodate the Firefox 5 Multi fuel
    Hi Hugo,
    Thanks for your question.
    The fireplace chamber to accommodate a Firefox 5 stove should be at least 590mm wide and 500mm deep as the Firefox 5 needs a minimum of 100mm rear and sides clearance to effectively warm the air flowing around it.
    Hope this helps?

    Hi. Would I need any extra parts to fit this stove in a 12x10 ft log cabin? Thanks.
    Hi Kevin,
    Thank you for your question.
    We have a new blog post on installing a stove in a log cabin or garden room here - https://www.directstoves.com/resources/which-wood-stove-should-i-choose-for-a-log-cabin-or-shed/

    The Firefox 5 is not the most suitable stove for this install. Ideally you would want a stove that is suitable for a 12mm hearth and has a low distance to combustibles (sides and rear).
    If you live within a Smoke Control area even in a log cabin the stove will need to be a Defra Approved model, this Firefox 5 isn't.

    You will need a Twin Wall flue system, we have a design sheet here - https://www.directstoves.com/index.php/downloads/dl/file/name/Flue Design Sheets.pdf/

    And there must be a solid hearth below and a noncombustible panel of some sort behind the stove to stop the wall setting on fire.

    Hope this helps,
    Kind regards,
    Customer Support answered on 16 March 2020
    Hi, it is possible to fit the stove without legs?
    Hi Max,
    Thank you for your question.

    The Firefox 5 has a hearth temperature exceeding 100°C and is not suitable for a 12mm hearth.

    You should NOT use this stove without the legs.

    If you have space issues, perhaps you should look at inset stoves which are designed to replace fires built in to fireplaces: https://www.directstoves.com/stoves/inset-stoves.html

    Hope this helps?
